I don’t think people will see this as a gift grab. Many couples who have Destination Wedding have an at home reception so that they can celebrate with their friends and loved ones who couldn’t attend; I think its a pretty normal thing. 🙂

I definitely don’t think people will see it as such, especially if you emphasize the casual-ness in your invite. So long as there’s tons of food, drinks and good times to be had most will just see it as a chance to celebrate your marriage and have a great time 🙂 You probably will get a fair amount of gifts, but of course they’ll be well-meaning.

PS – I am so envious of those who are doing Disney weddings! If only we could get our families down there, we’d so do that.

Some people will bring a gift, but most will not. Just accept what you get graciously, because giving a gift is important to those people who choose to do so. Post wedding parties of this sort do not require a gift from the invitee, as long as you don’t call is a Wedding Reception.
